Do any of you have funny moving stories like I do? I want to hear them! But in the meantime, let me tell you my story. When we moved, it was a mess. There truly were so many hiccups and so much drama – it was crazy! For starters, we decided to rent a pod instead of hiring a moving company…bad idea! It definitely did not go as planned. Here’s our experience:
So guess how many boxes have been moved into our Pod ( you fill it up and it gets shipped to your new home) ?
Here is the story. The pod was supposed to be delivered around 8 am. Mr.Savvy would have 2 coworkers come and help move everything into the pod while I started cleaning everything including the carpet.
It was such a nice plan …..
Around 7:45 am I saw a truck pull up from the company from whom we are getting the pod. The truck did not come into the apartment house rather ran idle for about 10 minutes on the street. While we sat watching the idle truck I mentioned to Mr.Savvy maybe it would be a good idea for him to check to see if the guy was for us. Mr.Savvy said they are supposed to call and the phone was not ringing, so I went back to trying to fit Watson with his harness – HELP! We Got A Problem.
Soon the truck left… still no phone call…. Mr.Savvy decided to call the company to see if that truck was for us…. guess what…. it was.
We were told that he knocked on the door and called twice ( leaving messages) and that “hopefully” he could deliver our pod at the end of his route.
I do not know what door he knocked on but it was not ours.
Mr.Savvy gave them the wrong number to contact…sigh….
As of 11: 59 am, there is no pod in sight.
Has this happened to anyone else in the past? Let me just tell you something – using a pod was a huge headache. We thought that it would be a really great and convenient way to move, but that was not our experience AT ALL. So, let me do you a favor and just tell you that instead of wasting your time with pods, just hire a moving company instead! Not only will it save you a headache, but honestly, a moving company will take better care of your stuff than you will…and your back will thank you!
